EFSP: The Performer
EFSP stands for Extraverted Sensing Feeling Perceiving. A person with this personality type is outgoing, generous, optimistic, observant and stubborn. I would say that describes me the most. An EFSP loves to entertain people. Their greatest trait is their acceptance of everyone. Often they are the center of attention, and wouldn’t want to anything else but have fun and make everybody happy. They avoid looking at long-term consequences and live in the moment. A good experience that I learned from would be my Senior Yr of High School. Towards the end of my senior year I went to more parties than I should’ve when I was supposed to be doing my homework. I almost failed 3 classes and ended ...view middle of the document...
My friend from High School felt like committing suicide after his Mom died in a car accident. He was depressed for a while, until he called one night and told me he was going to. I talked to him out it. If that’s not a good example of caring and concerned for others, I don’t what is.
EFSP’s under great deals of stress becomes overwhelmed with negative thoughts but come up with a simple explanation to help get over it. School is sometimes hard for an ESFP typically because they don’t like routines or any type of structure but their own. They come up with an idea as soon they are presented with the situation and improvise from there. “Hands On” experiences are an excellent way for an EFSP. They learn best when they’re working with others because of their ability to communicate so easily. School isn’t necessarily a struggle for me; it just depends on the subject that’s being taught. Most of the time I can pick up a new concept easily if I understand it well, as the same goes for everybody. For example, math is a complete struggle for me no matter how it’s taught. Since I was little, I couldn’t understand as well as everybody. But now since I have Mr. Chin as a teacher here at ITT, I finally am comfortable with it.
The study techniques I usually use are what everybody uses I guess. Take notes on the boards or PowerPoint etc. When I have reading material to complete I just take the main highlights and organize them and then write them in. My most effective strategy I have used that I know works is when I work with a partner and we quiz each other on the material. Go through the questions or whatever the material I wrote down. The notes help me organize my material into the important facts and separate the extra information I don’t need.
